PS3's New YouTube App Launches

PlayStation 3 has received its own dedicated YouTube app today which can do quite a lot, it seems.

Users can download the free app by visiting the ‘My Channels’ section of the XMB, under ‘TV / Video Services’.

Here's the skinny on the YouTube App:

^Search: Finding videos is easier than ever, with search suggestions and instant video results while you type.

^Access to subscriptions: Sign in to find the latest videos from your YouTube subscriptions, which now also includes official music videos.

^Your smartphone as a remote: With a quick pairing process, you can control YouTube on PS3 with a smartphone. Find a video on your phone and with the click of a button it’ll play on the big screen. While the video is playing you can control it from the phone, or keep browsing YouTube for the next one.
